The Days Are Long
The days are long when we are apart.
The pain settles into my aching heart.
My chest quivers. I can hardly breath.
My muscles useless. My mind deceives
Me at every silence, every moment you’re gone,
Gives me reason to doubt, to yearn and long
For that sound that soothes my troubled soul.
Lifts my heart and restores control
Of my very existence, my chaotic life.
